We visited Ali Bey in August 2011.
The choice of food was out of this world with four restaurants to choice from each night; two on the beach and two main restaurants. Each have Italian, Chinese and Turkish food stations where food in cooked in front of you. Over the two weeks we rarely seen any main course twice.
Saturday night is Gala night with huge prawns on offer. The range of fish on offer on other nights was great.
Waffles are freshly made between 15:00 and 17:00 each day, followed by bagels and cheese until 18:00. Bottle beer is on offer, EFES lager, Tuborg and EFES dark. Just ask for it. Branded ice creams are available throughout the complex all day.
Wednesday night is Turkish night when you are offered Turkish pancakes. There is also a market but prices are high. If you want a bargain visit Manavgat market on Monday or Thursday but be prepared to haggle. They will accept both Euros and Turkish Lira. It is open air but is covered to provide shade. We took the boat from the resort to Manavgat which was a good way to do it though a little pricey at 15 Euros each.
Staff have a good understanding of English and any problems were very quickly dealt with. We celebrated our anniversary while there and we able to reserve a table which was decorated with flowers. We were also given a delicious cake with sparklers.
My husband and son went parasailing (60 Euros for two) and they tried to charge 30 Euros for photos copied onto a CD. We didn't have that much on us so they copied it onto my camera's micro SD card. I couldn't view them on my camera but worked perfectly on my home PC. The aqua park was amazing and much better than some we have paid to enter on other holidays. There is food available here during the day.
The rooms do need updating but are very clean and have powerful showers. Dove body wash, hand wash and shampoo are provided in dispensers. Air conditioning remains on all day. All rooms have balconies, ground floor balconies are not at ground level but raised slightly. Our maid service was amazing with swans with flowers and hearts made out of towels on our bed (we did tip the maid some lira every couple of days). Some of the blocks have been refurbished but you pay extra for them. The other ones are good enough.
There are two stages so you have a choice of shows each night. Tarzan was amazing. We also seen Ariel, Beauty and the Beast, Joseph. People recommended the Michael Jackson show but the main actor was ill while we were there.
There were activities during the day. We took part in the pool games, archery, shuffleboard, french bowls and darts. Nobody is hassled to join in, it is voluntary. There is also water aerobics and one instructor gave us a lot of fun with her 'down' instructions.
You can use the sauna for free but treatments are pricey. The gym is not free as it is run by Fitness First.
Free WiFi is available in the main bars but it can be slow in the evenings.
There are two sides to the resort each with a stage, bars and pools (including childrens pool) but you can use either of them. It means than you can have a change. All faciities are duplicated so no-one misses out.
We have been to all inclusive in Turkey twice before and once in Mexico; this was definitely the best for food and the aqua park. We would definitely go back.
